The places we can go
We make the complex world of working or interning abroad simple – connecting universities and businesses with the programs and people they need to bring the world closer together.
There are three main ways we can support your business. However, we’re travellers – so we're always happy to explore new opportunities and collaborations.
Are you an overseas university, UK company or internship placement partner? This way.
BUNAC is one of the largest A-rated sponsors for the UK’s Temporary Work Government Authorised (GAE) program. Rough translation:
- If you’re an overseas university that sends students to the UK on an internship program
- If you’re a placement company that sources internship placements for your customers
- Or if you’re a UK company that regularly takes interns on an internal internship program
Then BUNAC can provide the sponsorship and visa support for your students, customers or interns to do a 1-6 month paid or unpaid internship in Britain.
Like a lot of things in Britain (carpets in bathrooms, Morris dancers, the pronunciation of ‘Loughborough’) the UK GAE visa process can be complex. We make it straightforward – providing your interns with visa assistance, sponsorship, pre-departure support and in-country check-ins with our London team. Plus, your team or faculty will have an annual allocation of Certificates of Sponsorship set aside for your students. Find out more about our Intern in Britain program.
You need seasonal workers, our travellers need work. Let’s talk.
Who said you can’t get the staff nowadays? Join our global network of trusted employers who recruit each year from our BUNAC program participants. Here’s how it works. Every year we send thousands of students and young people on working holidays and summer work programs to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, UK, Ireland and Japan: providing the visa support, tax essentials and job connections they need to work the world.
Whether you’re a farm that needs pickers and packers, a ski resort that needs seasonal staff, or a bar that needs baristas - we can help. Your business will benefit from having a multicultural and international workforce, and you’ll have the reassurance of knowing your staff have the required visas to work.
Connect your customers with a world of life-shaping experiences.
The work and travel abroad experts, BUNAC offer 17 programs in seven countries. Backed by 60 years of industry expertise, our comprehensive work and intern programs are fully supported by our global teams giving your customers the visa, sponsorship, job and in-country support they need to see the world, earn money and grow their skills.
Human and hands-on, we become an extension of your team. For your customers, support starts from the minute they book until the moment they return home – with 24/7 help on the road for total peace of mind. For your team, you’ll have access to marketing materials and a personal Account Manager at the end of video call every time you have a question/need to see a friendly face. (You can meet those faces further down this page).
“Internships in the UK are among the most popular summer opportunities we support, and BUNAC’s ability to streamline the visa application process makes these learning opportunities so much more accessible to our entire student population. BUNAC staff always go above and beyond to support our students, keep us updated about policy changes, and warmly welcome interns from across the globe. We look forward to continuing to support students in the future.”
“BUNAC offer a high level of service to our British participants as we always receive positive feedback from our clients regarding the quality of BUNAC’s programmes. During our long partnership, BUNAC staff have proven themselves to be professional and caring and they offer programmes and services that make us proud to partner with them. I confidently recommend BUNAC as a valuable and reliable organization who have a great deal of experience in our industry.”
We take your business seriously – even if we don’t take ourselves too seriously at times! Here are the people and personalities behind our incredible partnership team.
Kristian is the Yoda of the BUNAC world. Having worked for BUNAC for 10+ years across Products, Marketing, Sales and Partnerships – there’s nothing he doesn’t know. Believing that travel is a Force for good, he’s worked in Australia and America, and travelled the world sourcing our products and supporting our partners. A committed Londoner, when he’s not imparting work wisdom, he’s imparting his London knowledge – saving our weekend plans from the Dark Side (the sofa).
Our resident entertainer, Kate once performed for troops in Germany. Nowadays, when our dancing queen isn’t entertaining the office, she’s face-to-face supporting our partners. Having travelled to 25+ countries, done a working holiday in Australia and summer camp in America, her product knowledge is seriously on point. Committed, passionate and outgoing – to our clients, she’s the perfect partner. In fact, they can’t stop raving about her. Okay, enough with the dance puns now.
Loyal, personable, passionate and has a sense of adventure. Our BUNAC Partnership team are also pretty good. Drop us an email and let’s set up a call to explore how we can work together.
